WHITE BIRD “I love wrestling,” smiled Kaylee Page of Kooskia.
Although that may not be a traditional comment from a young woman and a rodeo queen to boot – it is.
Page is the 2018 White Bird Rodeo Queen. This fall she will be a sophomore at Clearwater Valley High School.
“I start the school year playing volleyball, then move into my favorite sport of wrestling,” she stated.
The daughter of Yogi and Phyllis Page, she also competes in track (although was out with an injury this year). She also enjoys hunting, antler searching, hiking, painting and – of course – riding her horse.
“I have been riding since I was 4 years old and got my first horse when I was 7,” she said. She has been riding her current horse, Kat, for nearly five years.
“I have been though a lot with her – barrel racing for one, and now I am in the process of learning to breakaway rope,” she added.
Page is past queen of the Cottonwood Riding Club (2015-16) and Grangeville Triple Bar Drill Team (2016-17).
Page said family is important to her. She has a younger brother, Jackson, and she said her whole family has been supportive of her endeavors: her mom made her sash and flowers for her horse and her dad hauls her horse to parades and rodeos.
“White Bird is a small, family oriented rodeo and I am excited to represent it,” she said.
